While my jobs, roles, and positions have certainly evolved (see below), my passion for and about food has not. This has always remained my core, my anchor. It is central to everything I do: where we go for vacation, what we do on weekends, where we live, where I work, and whom I surround myself with.
I feel that this passion, combined with the education I received at Skidmore, has helped me succeed in life and contribute to my field. I am not speaking of any particular skill I learned in a specific class, but rather my curiosity across a broad range of subjects that drives creative thought. This is the value of a Skidmore degree. It pushes curiosity and creativity, it pushes critical thinking. As my industry evolves, different viewpoints, ideas, and skills are required. It is the curiosity and critical thinking I learned at Skidmore that allows me to thrive and advance both in my career and in my life.
